Craig Liljestrand's CDLB Column: Plaintiffs' Asbestos Evidence Does Not Satisfy Illinois' Substantial Factor Test

February 7, 2020

Hinshaw's Craig Liljestrand has published his latest Chicago Daily Law Bulletin (CDLB) column. Titled "Plaintiffs fail to supply sufficient asbestos evidence to keep verdict," the article examines the recent Fourth District Appellate Court of Illinois decision in Krumwiede v. Tremco, 220 IL App (4th) 180434, Jan. 21, 2020 (4th Dist.).

The case involved claims that a decedent had been exposed to two asbestos-containing products manufactured by Tremco while working as a window glazier. Liljestrand explains the appellate court's application of the "frequency, regularity and proximity" test, and its holding that Tremco was entitled to a judgment notwithstanding the verdict.
